I am looking for information on Jacob Izlar’s second wife, Harriet Burnham Rowe. Was Harriet married before Jacob Izlar? Was her maiden name Burnham or Rowe? Does anyone know who her parents are?
have you done the Ancestry.com DNA test?

Susan and Lynn..
thanks... Well... I was always told that Hamp was a very light skinned
black person who was part white. It could explain why my very dark
complexioned parents had two of my brothers who were light skinned.
I discovered Hamp Bonnette on the Census when I was searching around at
Schomberg Library in 1989. I actually cried as I believed he could have
the African from which we all come from.. a possible child of a slave...
I found no other information about him that could actually connect him to
my ancestors. It seemed like he appeared and disappeared. Back then I
began looking through the slave registers at the library that were all on
microfiche. I found nothing but perhaps... I didn't look at enough
I lost many of the documents that I had photocopied when I moved. Now I
want to scan the documents into my Family Tree maker and get the data on
current family members. My father's last brother of the 15 siblings died
in 2003. I have several pictures of him and it was his wife who told me
that Americus was buried in a place called " Betsy" cemetary. She did not
know how to spell it so I was going on pronunciation only. I was hoping
find the cite, prove that it was a buriel ground and like they did in NY
it back to being sacred land. Of course, that would be done with the
collaboration of many and the development of new relationships with
and community leadership. But that is the next step.
the current priority is:
1. Connecting Hamp Bonnett if there is a connection to be made
2. Mapping out the family tree carefully
3. Get all information in Family Tree Maker regarding current
descendents of which there are many... my generation is in their 50 and
we don't have a whole lot of time to leave a legacy to the young ones who
don't know each other like we do.
I really appreciate your help and your thinking about these connections.

PS Lastly, I started making alist of the persons buried in Shady Grove
Cemetary with Pictures of graves. It is the place where my parents went
church and they and others are buried there. I never go to Orangeburg
going to the cemetary with my children. I tell them stories that I heard
about their ancestors.
